Pokémon Go Registeel counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

Add Registeel to your collection of legendary titans in Pokémon Go.

Registeel, one of the three legendary titans of Hoenn, has returned to Pokémon Go.

The trick to defeating Registeel, which was created by Regigigas, is to use a combination of fire and fighting-type Pokémon.

Like the other Legendary Pokémon it shares the Hoenn region with, along with its fellow titans, Regice and Regirock, Registeel will be available in five-star raids, so, if you want to add it to your collection, you'll need a team of fellow Pokémon trainers.

Everything we know about Registeel

Registeel is one of the legendary titans from the Hoenn region, alongside Regice and Regirock. These three Pokémon were created by Regigigas, another legendary Pokémon, after pulled the continents of the world into place.

Regigigas formed Registeel from magma, leading people to call it the iron Pokémon.

For a while Registeel was worshipped alongside Regigigas and the other titans, until one day a group of humans sealed Regigigas beneath the Snowpoint Temple. Registeel, and the other titans, was then sent to the Hoenn region, where they were sealed in their chambers.

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald, including the remakes, you must find the Sealed Chamber if you wish to catch Registeel. Here you will decode a series of messages written in braille that retell the story of Regigigas and its titans.

After solving the puzzle in the Sealed Chamber, you will be able to enter the other chambers hidden around Hoenn that contain Registeel and its companions.
